The Walk series tells the story of a man who loses everything all at once: his wife, his business, his home. After considering suicide, he decides to walk across the country. As we discuss the life lessons he learns along the way, we will compare them to our own life lessons. This course requires reading the five books of Richard Paul Evans’ Walk series in five weeks. Because each session will build on the previous one, regular attendance is necessary. The course will begin during the second week of the term to allow for time to begin the reading.
